I'm running an IndieGoGo campaign that is Mac-related and I think a lot of you would be really interested in it. Basically, I've never used a Mac before in my life and I want one. I want to document how long it takes someone that has never used a Mac to make the switch to Mac and use NOTHING but a Mac for the first 30 days of receiving the Mac.

Check this link for the campaign and let me know what you think! I'd definitely love to get some opinions and suggestions: http://igg.me/p/219601?a=1166126

Want don't you purchase a refurbish Mac instead of a new one and save lots of money.

How much do you think I could save if I went that route? Thanks for the advice! I might just do that!

I work in Apple retail. I hear and read stories from switchers every day. There are 1000's of articles, videos etc. on the net. Will your story will be any different? The only thing I see different is you are asking people to fund your experience and for that you are willing to share it. That's a first.

I don't think so. However, I don't want my comment to be taken as a personal attack. If you don't ask you don't receive, but it does seem a little self serving. There is nothing unique about switching from Windows to Mac.

You can save quite a bit of money that way going used.
